Hormonal Imbalance: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

Hormonal imbalance is a condition that can affect both men and women. Different factors are responsible for this and it can put several roadblocks in the realization of a healthy body and a healthy mind. In women, hormone levels can fluctuate during puberty, menopause or perimenopause. A man can also experience hormonal imbalance when they go through the ‘male menopause’ phase or when they experience age-related hormonal shift called andropause.

Hormones like estrogen, testosterone, insulin and adrenaline affect the proper functioning of our body. These hormones, secreted from different organs, work together to regulate the different processes in our body. Imbalance of even one hormone can cause a host of health issues. The most common treatments for hormonal imbalance include hormone replacement therapies, birth control pills and thyroid medications. Imbalance of different hormones can cause different side effects.

The most common hormones whose levels fluctuate are estrogen and progesterone in women. This happens primarily due to overuse of birth control pills, undergoing a lot of stress and also overuse of cosmetics. Testosterone imbalance in men leads to thinner, shorter hair or in some cases, hair loss. Apart from the above mentioned treatments, other remedies include over the counter supplements to balance hormones, dietary changes, taking on less stress, exercising more, sleeping more and even taking prescription medicines.

How is the treatment done?

A woman can go for over the counter supplements to treat imbalance of estrogen and progesterone. Such supplements are generally available in the form of a cream or a pill and can be generally acquired without prescriptions. A healthy diet can go a long way in treating hormonal imbalance in both men and women. Having foods rich in zinc helps to manage the level of testosterone. People should include omega-3 fatty acids in their diet as they help in the production of healthy cell membranes. Healthy cell membranes ensure that the hormones reach the intended cells in the body. Estrogen levels can be maintained by taking in lots of fiber. Furthermore, excessive drinking of caffeine or alcohol can also cause hormonal imbalance.

Exercising helps to release such hormones in the blood stream that can offset the harmful effects that can occur due to the imbalance of female reproductive hormones. Another method of improving estrogen production is by reducing stress. Sleeping for 7-9 hours every day is essential to maintain the hormonal balance. Men benefit more from sleeping well as their body produces testosterone during the REM cycle of sleep.

Prescription medicines are generally recommended when other ways to restore hormonal balance have failed. Birth control pills can be sometimes recommended to women as they have powerful physical effects. Anti-depressants and medicines containing menopausal hormone can help to restore hormonal balance in women. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy helps to balance hormonal imbalance due to aging or irregular lifestyle habits.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

A person suffering from hormonal balance will exhibit some symptoms like: insomnia, changes in appetite, fatigue, depression, anxiety, low libido, digestive issues, hair loss, hair thinning, weight gain or weight loss and infertility and irregular periods. A person is eligible for treatment if he/she suffers from some or most of these symptoms. A person may not always suffer from hormone deficiency but also from surplus of hormones. Salivary tests offer a good indication of the hormone levels in a person’s body. A person becomes eligible for treatment if such tests find any imbalance of hormones in his/her body.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

A person who does not suffer from any of the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance is not eligible. Any person whose hormone levels do not show any discrepancy after he/she has undergone a blood test or a saliva test is not entitled for treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Hormone replacement therapy can increase the risks of heart disease and stroke, cause blood clots to form, cause gallbladder problems and breast issues. It may also cause bloating, headache and hot flashes. Oral birth control pills can increase resistance to insulin and abnormal intolerance to glucose. This may put the person at risk of developing Type-2 diabetes.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

A person taking medications to treat hormonal imbalance will have to make the corresponding changes in his/her lifestyle to achieve the best results. The treatment for hormonal imbalance is generally a long term process and there are no such post-treatment guidelines. However, sleeping well, exercising and having healthy foods can go a long way in alleviating hormonal imbalance in both men and women.

How long does it take to recover?

A person who has changed his diet and his lifestyle will generally require some time before he/she can understand the good effects. Hormonal changes do not take place suddenly and it will take time for the hormone levels to reach their normal levels even after taking medications. It takes a person about three months to feel the full effects of hormone replacement therapy. The recovery period, hence, will vary from person to person and also depend on the severity of the hormonal imbalance.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

15 tablets of anti androgen or testosterone blockers costs around Rs 25 in India. A person may have to take one daily if there is an imbalance in his testosterone levels. Therefore, the monthly cost comes to around Rs 50 per month. One sheet of estrogen tablets cost around Rs 300. Other hormone replacement therapy medications generally cost around Rs 100 for a week’s dose. Birth control pills generally cost between Rs 100 – Rs 500. Antidepressants are available within a price range of Rs 18 – Rs 3000.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

Stress is one of the primary causes why men/women suffer from hormonal dysfunction. Stress results in increase in the production of cortisol that causes the depletion of progesterone. Poor gut health can impede the production of sex hormones, adrenal hormones and thyroid hormones. Manifestations of poor gut health include constipation, diarrhea, bloating, reflux and gas. Furthermore, malfunctioning of the thyroid gland can also cause hormonal imbalance. Thus, even if a person has undergone treatment for hormonal imbalance, he/she can experience the same problem if he/she suffers from stress, gastric or thyroid problems.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

Consuming foods rich in healthy fats like coconut oil, grass-fed butter, avocados and salmon help to treat hormonal imbalance. Adaptogen herbs not only help a person to balance hormones but also protect him/her against various diseases. Ashwagandha is one such herb. Breathing exercises and acupuncture help a person to get relief from stress and thus help to restore hormonal balance.

Management of Male Hormonal Issues!

Similar to menopause in women which pertains to hormonal imbalances; men experience andropause that is characterized by irregularities in the hormonal levels. Several bodily functions are managed by hormones that can be described as chemical compounds. Some hormones that regulate the body functions in the male population are estrogen, insulin, cortisol, testosterone, and thyroid-related hormones. A hormonal imbalance in men is a part of the aging process.

Research studies indicate that there is a fall of nearly one percent in a male’s hormonal levels every year after they cross the age of 30 years. In men, different hormones control the physical male attributes such as sex organs, facial hair, and the testes. Also, the chemicals are responsible for the release of sperm in the testes and have a bearing on the man’s sexual libido. Male hormones are, also, known for restoring bone health, uplifting the mood, and boosting mental agility.

In short, where the overall health of the males is concerned, hormones play a major role. As a male, if you are suffering from hormonal imbalance, the possibility of ailing from weight gain, tiredness mood imbalances, hot flashes, and hair loss remains high. However, you can control the hormonal imbalance by making some changes to your diet and lifestyle. Natural cures are favored by a significant percentage of the population because they do not give birth to ill-effects, are inexpensive treatment methods, and serve as effective cures. Some home remedies for hormone-linked imbalances in men are studied in the following details.

  1. Body Exertion: It is imperative for you to take measures to lose weight when ailing from hormonal imbalance because the fat quantity in your body affects the testosterone levels. The higher the amount of fat, greater is the drop in the testosterone levels. This is because fats have a role to play in the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. For this reason, you are advised to follow a regular exercise regime as part of your fat loss efforts. Additionally, you can benefit via exercises because they help to enhance the mood and improves sleep patterns.
  2. Calcium Intake: The intake of calcium-rich foods is recommended if a male suffers from hormonal imbalance. This helps reduce the susceptibility of suffering from bone-linked diseases. Males should note that as a result of low testosterone levels, your bones could become weak; and calcium is needed for their strengthening. Therefore, they can benefit by adding calcium sources to their diet. Cheese, the dark green-colored variety of vegetables, milk, broccoli, almonds, kale, and soybeans can help to keep the body nourished with calcium.
  3. Body Detoxification: As a part of their hormonal imbalance recovery measures, males should, also, consider detoxifying the body to get rid of the inner toxic waste. This, in turn, improves the body’s ability to counter disorders and improves the overall well-being. Some foods that are recommended for detoxifying the body include the cruciferous vegetables such as kale, cabbages, collards, and broccoli. Also, other foods such as apple, ginger, milk thistle herb, banana, pomegranate, rosemary, grapes, avocado, cherries, and oranges can be added to the dietary regime for their detoxification benefits. Moreover, there are several detoxification courses that are deemed effective and you can ask your nutritionist for more details on the same.

On a concluding note, you must know that stress-relieving techniques are worth practicing for bringing about a healthy balance between the hormonal levels. Meditation techniques, deep breathing, and yoga poses are ideal for reducing stress in the body and men with hormonal imbalance sure should consider practicing these methods.

Thinning Of Hair: Should You Get Your Hormones Checked?

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, Certification In Diabetes

Thinning Of Hair: Should You Get Your Hormones Checked?

Thinning hair, noticeable bald spots, large clumps of hair in the hairbrush or shower drain are indications of hair loss. This loss of hair is an effect of hormonal imbalance.

Have You Seen these Signs of Hair Loss?

  • A widening part of the scalp
  • A ponytail becomes noticeably thinner
  • Large clumps of hair in the hairbrush or shower drain and on your pillow after a night’s sleep

Why does it happen?

  1. Play of Hormones: Hormonal imbalance is seen in women during menopause, perimenopause, pregnancy, and in endocrine disorders, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Progesterone and estrogen are two important female hormones. Progesterone keeps a check on estrogen levels. When progesterone levels are too low, it leads to a state of hyperestrogenism which triggers excessive hair shedding and hair loss. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a potent form of testosterone that normally leads to hair loss. Women, who produce high levels of male hormones (androgens), have increased testosterone levels which can convert to DHT, leading to hair loss.
  2. Stress: When a woman experiences any stressful condition, her adrenal glands increase the release of cortisol (stress hormone). This leads to secretion of adrenaline which leads to increased levels of testosterone and DHT.
  3. Under or over performing thyroid: An overactive thyroid and lack of sufficient parathyroid hormone can also result in thinning of hair. Accompanying symptoms are fatigue, unexplained weight gain, aching joints, constipation, dry skin, feeling cold all the time, and poor sleep.
  4. Pregnancy and childbirth: Pregnancy and childbirth change a woman’s hormonal balance and can result in hair loss. Therefore, it is normal for postpartum mothers to experience thinning of the hair and even bald patches. Such hair loss is temporary and heals itself within several months.
  5. Menopause: Menopause also leads to hair loss. During menopause, a woman’s estrogen levels fall and are no longer in balance with DHT levels. This low estrogen level and high DHT lead to hair loss.
  6. Nutrient deficiencies: Low levels of certain nutrients within the body, for example, vitamins A, E, and iron may result in hair loss.

How Can You Help Yourself? 

  1. Consume omega 3-fatty acids: Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are kinds of essential fatty acids (EFAs). They increase hair growth. Sources are walnuts, flax seeds, cold-water fish, such as salmon, sardines, herring, and mackerel.
  2. Get plenty of sleep: Lack of sleep causes increased stress levels, higher production of cortisol, and ultimately hair loss. Good amount of sleep will lead to harmonious functioning of the body.
  3. Take dietary and hair supplements to prevent hair loss: Certain supplements can help minimize the production of DHT, prevent DHT from binding to hair follicles, or stimulate inactive follicles to encourage hair growth.

How Hormones Affect Your Health?

Hormones are vital for the human body. They are basically chemicals released into the bloodstream and travel from one cell to another. They travel through the blood and assist organs in performing numerous functions of the human body. Hormones are responsible for a wide range of activities like growth, puberty, facial hair, stress, mood, reproduction, sleep, reproduction and many more. They are also found in other organisms like plants and animals.

Hormones are secreted by endocrine glands. The endocrine glands include pituitary, adrenal and thyroid glands. The study of the endocrine system and hormones is known as endocrinology. Also, some major diseases are caused by hormone imbalance in the human body. The functions or activities of the body affected by hormone secretion are:

  • Growth and development
  • Metabolism
  • Mood
  • Sexual functions like menstruation, fertility, reproduction.
  • Blood Sugar level

Some vital hormones affecting human health:

  • Estrogen: Also known as the female hormone and responsible for a lot of functions and activities associated with a female body. They are secreted by ovaries and are primarily responsible for reproduction, menopause, puberty, moods and even sleep. High level of estrogen production is rare and mostly occurs because of oral contraceptives. Low level of estrogen is more common among girls and women alike. However, the most common disease experienced by females is PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome). Imbalance of hormones will mostly lead to hair loss, acne, depression and even osteoporosis. You can start by taking supplements like vitamin B complex and magnesium or sometimes even undergo hormonal treatment.
  • Testosterone: It is the male sex hormone. However, they are present in low quantities in females too. The testosterone is responsible for muscle growth and developmental functions. They also control puberty in males, facial hair, libido, erectile functions and formation of sperm. Imbalance can lead to depression, mood swings, insomnia, erectile dysfunction and also acne and hair loss. Excessive secretion of testosterone in females leads to increased hair growth and deepening of the voice. Moreover, regular drinking and smoking may lead to decrease production of testosterone among males.
  • Cortisol: It is one of the many hormones secreted by the adrenal glands. They are responsible for physical, stress regulation, maintenance of the immune system and inflammation, etc. High level of cortisol can lead to stomach ulcers, high blood pressure, fatigue, anxiety and depression. Low level of cortisol may lead to chronic fatigue syndrome and even alcoholism.
  • Insulin: It is one of the most important hormones in the human body and is produced by the pancreas. Insulin is responsible for breaking down carbohydrates in the body and maintaining blood sugar level. Its job is to use the sugar (glucose) from carbohydrates and convert it into energy. An imbalance of insulin leads to high blood sugar level (hyperglycemia) or low blood sugar level (hypoglycemia). Such imbalances can lead to diabetes in humans which vary depending on the blood sugar level of the body.
  • Growth Hormones: They are secreted by the pituitary glands of the body. The hormones are responsible for growth and development in children and teenagers. They are also responsible for proper functioning of the heart, muscle development, metabolism and many more. Imbalances can lead to stunted growth in children. Consult your doctor for ways to boost growth in your child.

Hormones play a major role in the human body. Their deficiency or imbalance can create serious health issues and disease for humans. So the next time you have difficulty in losing weight or suffering from depression, your hormones are equally responsible along with your genes.

Irregular Periods - When To See A Gynaecologist?

Irregular Periods - When To See A Gynaecologist?

Missing out on your periods or irregular periods once in a while is common. However, the problem arises when irregular periods become every month’s story. The irregularity can be an amalgamation of a host of factors. Ignoring the same for long will only complicate things further. For women of reproductive age, the problem can give rise to deleterious consequences, including difficulties in conceiving. In this article, we will discuss some of the common triggers that result in irregular periods and when to seek medical help.

What causes Irregular Periods?
The hormonal balance plays a significant role in the proper functioning of the vital organs of the body. More than often, irregular periods are found to be a manifestation of hormonal imbalance. Some of the conditions that trigger the hormonal imbalance include

  • PCO is a common medical condition that affects women of reproductive age. PCOS is characterized by the formation of cysts in the ovary (one or both) that affects the ovulation process. In PCOS, there is an increased production of Androgen, especially Testosterone that can cause irregular periods, hair fall, facial hair, weight gain etc.

  • Time and again doctors and health professionals emphasize the importance of leading a stress-free life. Research suggests stress and anxiety often interfere with the functioning of the Hypothalamus. As a result, the pituitary glands that control and regulate the activities of the ovaries, adrenal glands, and thyroid glands may be affected. These can also trigger a hormonal imbalance giving rise to menstrual problems such as Irregular periods. In case of extreme stress, there may be a short-term cessation of periods (Secondary Amenorrhea).

  • The hormonal imbalance and irregular periods can also be an outcome of other medical conditions such as endometriosis, a cancer affecting the reproductive organs, fibroids, obesity, diabetes, hyperprolactinemia (characterized by elevated level of prolactin) or even thyroid disorders.

  • Women who indulge in strict dieting can also suffer from irregular periods. Strict dieting (especially the ones that are without a proper nutritional guidance) can rob the body of the essential nutrients disrupting the hormonal balance.

  • Irregular periods are normal in women who are nearing their menopause.

When to seek medical assistance?
Irregular periods can be indicative of a severe health problem. Consult a gynecologist

  • If your regular cycles get delayed by more than 7 days.

  • There is spotting or bleeding in between the periods.

  • Your periods last for more than ten days or less than two days.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

  • There is excruciating pain during periods.

  • The gap between two successive menstrual cycles is more than 35 days or less than 21 days.

  • Your periods are heavy and unmanageable, affecting your daily routine.

Short In Height - Should You Be Worried About Your Child?

Short In Height - Should You Be Worried About Your Child?

Out of the many things a parent can be worried about their child, physical growth and development are the major ones. Height development is indeed a very crucial part of the overall development of a child's body. But how will you know whether your child is short and should you worry if he or she is short?

When is a child categorised as being short?
A child is said to be of short stature when the height is two standard deviations less than the mean height for the specific age and sex. However, it does not signify that your child is sick or has some deformity.

What are the causes of being short?
The most common reasons that need not be worried about are:

  1. Ancestry: Your child short height could be a result genetics. If his/her parents belong from a short family stature, then, the child is most likely to follow the same. Being said that, their body performs in a normal way and they do not face any medical issue despite being short.
  2. Delay in Growth: In case a child faces a severe growth delay between the age of 6 months and up to 2 years, then it may lead to him/her staying short. Such children usually grow at a much slower pace, compared to other children of the same age without any development issues. However, no medical treatment is required as the child usually catches up with the height of their friends of the same age, once they become adults.

What are the medical Conditions behind the short stature?
For children who show an excessive delay in growth, doctors can find out whether they are going through any serious medical condition that needs attention or not. Some of the medical conditions which can cause short height are:

  1. Malnutrition: For those who do not receive proper nutrition on a daily basis, tend to face physical health issues.
  2. Chronic Illness: Any congenital disease or something that affects the major organs of one's body might slow down the height growth.
  3. GHD: Growth Hormone Deficiency is a common condition in children. When the pituitary gland does not produce enough hormones, such a condition occurs.
  4. Mental Stress: When a child faces stress from a very little age, often he or she becomes mentally and physically hampered.
  5. Genetic Problems: A condition known as Turner’s syndrome can cause growth failure in a girl child.
  6. Hormonal Imbalance: For those who suffer from improper production of hormones, they might face obstruction in case of height growth.
  7. Endocrine diseases: Endocrine diseases disrupt hormone production thus resulting in a delay in growth.

For every 100 children of a particular age, 3 tend to be shorter. However, unless your child suffers from a medical problem, short stature is not to be worried, and it is recommended that they have a proper and balanced nutrition to ensure a proper height development. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear lybrate-user, Please meet an endocrinologist to know whether you have hit puberty. But remember 'Body Shaming' is not cool. So don't bother about people who call you names. They usually don't think too much about you, as it is. Focus on people who care about you. Learn to respect yourself. Start looking at small positives in a day. If you still feel low meet a counsellor or Psychiatrist.

My tsh level is 9 and vit d level is 16. Is it possible that tsh level vary due to hormone imbalance or low vit d has any effect?

M.B.B.S, Post Graduate Diploma In Maternal & Child Health
Gynaecologist, Bokaro
Low Vit D and TSH are not related per se. Yet both are very important in their own respects. You can get tsh cross checked at another lab for confirmation.

I am 41 and going through perimenopause. I got most of my blood tests done and they were almost normal other than the hormonal imbalance. I got mammography test done and it shows heterogeneous dense breast tissue and bilateral axillary lymph nodes with fatty helum. No mammography evidence of malignancy is seen. What does it mean?

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana
It means currently mammography report suggests your breast are absolutely normal. No signs of cancer/ malignancy. Just follow hormonal imbalance with your doctor. Take care of your mood and sleep.

What You Need To Know About Acne?
Types, Causes and Treatment for Acne


Hi everyone. Myself Deepak Sharma. I am skin specialist and cosmetic laser surgeon. I have experience for over 15 years in this field. Today, we will talk about Acne. It is commonly known as pimples.

Ye jo pimples hote hai inka ek particular distribution hota hai. Usually face pe, upper chest, upper back, upper shoulder. These are the common places where they are found. Usually kisi bhi age mein ho sakta hai. Young age mein bhi ho sakta hai aur adult age mein bhi ho sakta hai. Usually found in young age. jo adolescent age hota hai usme growth spurts hota hai uske wajah se ye kaafi dekhne ko milta hai. But adult mein bhi ho sakta hai because of hormonal imbalance. Aur iske grades hote hai 1-4. 1 grade mein hum inhe blackhead, whitehead and comedones kehte hai. Aur grade 4 mein nodules or cyst ban jaate hai, moti moti gaathiya ban jati hai. Toh grade 4 kehlata hai. Iska hone ka kaaran usually hormone disturbance hota hai.

Younge age mein growth spurts ke wajah se aur adult age mein high level of testosterone ya fir ye bhi hota hai ke aapne koi steroid ka cream aapne apne chehre pe lagaya hai ya khane mein steroids ka zada use kiya hai. Kuch foods bhi hote hai jinhe high glycemic foods kehte hai. Jisme meetha zada hota hai uske wajah se bhi pimples hote hai. Jo pimples wali gland hoti hai jisse sebaceous gland kehte hai wo zada active ho jati hai, unka size bada hone ke wajah se jo unki ducts hoti hai unke block hone ke wajah se humko pimples hoti hai. Aur jo protein hoti hai jisse hum way protein kehte hai ye commonly hume diary milk hote hai jo dairy items hote hai usme protein hone ke wajah se ye zada active ho jati hai. Aur uske zada active hone ke wajah se ye protein responsible hoti hai acne karne ke liye. Stress bhi isme responsible hai somehow because jo stress hormone hai wo release ho jata hai aur jiski wajah se glands zada release ho jata hai. Isse bachne ke liye hum chahiye ke hum zada meethe cheezein na le, usko squeeze na kare, sote huye bhi straight posture rakhe, side pose na rakhe.

Aur uske baad bhi thik nahi ho paate hai toh hume apne dermatologist se consult karna chahiye. Iska jo treatment hota hai wo kareeban 3-4 months hota hai jisme kuch medicines di jaati hai jaise klindamicin, benzoic acid, retinoic acid. Iska jo main treatment hota hai wo oral isotretenoin hota hai jo 3-4 months hota hai. Uska proper use karne ke baad uska recurrence kaafi kam ho jata hai. Apart from this agar aap ye nahi karte hai toh ye acne scar ya pigmentation create kar dete hai jinke further treatement ke liye chemical peeling, salicylic acid, lactic acid, there are few peels that we can use. Apart from this, scar hone ke baad hum inka treatment laser se bhi kar sakte hai. Home remedies ke liye acne se bachne ke liye hum uspe neem ka paste, turmeric ka paste ya fir hum usko wash kar sakte hai lukewarm water se in few drops of vinegar into that ya hum papaya mask laga sakte hai. Aur complication as I said ke hume bachna chahiye taaki face pe scar ya pigmentation na ho.

Fir bhi agar aapko lagta hai ke home remedies se farak nahi aa raha toh aap mujhe contact kar sakte hai Lybrate ke through. Thank you very much.
